The Benefits of Rosehip Oil

Rosehip Oil

Since living in Spain, I have been using and enjoying the wonderful benefits of rosehip oil. Super easy with fabulous results. It is pure too. No added chemicals or other junk. Here is some information and benefits on one of natures best kept secrets. 

Rosehip oil has been used for generations by the Andean Indians of Chile who understood the marvelous benefits for the hair and skin.

The oil is extracted from the fruit (hip) of the wild rose after it has bloomed and lost its petals. 
Rosehip oil is rich in antioxidants, vitamins A, E and C, and is especially  high in the essential fatty acids, 
omegas 3, 6 and 9.

You can apply it to slightly damp skin which helps to hold moisture and reduce dryness.

Benefits of Rose Hip Oil


Excellent for shining, healthy hair. The oil also improves dandruff and other scalp conditions. Use as a mask and massage a small amount of rosehip oil into the hair and scalp. Leave it on for at least 30 minutes. Then shampoo and condition as usual, and relish the results.


Soothing for sunburn. It aids in the healing process and can reduce inflammation. Corrects UV damage from the sun.


Scar treatment – Reduces the appearance of scars, burns and stretch marks. I bashed my knee while walking the dogs and was amazed how quickly it healed from simply using a little rosehip oil daily.

Better than Botox! Treats fine lines and wrinkles - Rosehip oil's vitamin A is known to promote healthy skin cell rejuvenation, which causes skin to glow and appear fresh and supple.

Hydrates dry skin - Rosehip oil gives a boost of moisture to dry or mature skin. Unlike other oils, the smooth and light texture of the oil is unlikely to clog your pores. Or, you can add a few drops to your regular moisturizer for a lighter touch.

Soothing for eczema and psoriasis - the astringent and skin nourishing properties can help to speed up the healing  process, as well as hydrate and moisturize the area.

Evens skin tone - reduces the appearance of dark spots, aging spots and hyper-pigmentation. Simply apply to affected area daily.

Healthy nails. Try dabbing a bit of rosehip oil on your nails and cuticles to help prevent hangnails and nail breakage.

I hope you enjoy this oil as much I as do. Love Chef Mel xx
